Easy. Cheap. Quick. Tasty. Healthy.
Those are my go-to requirements for when I'm cooking. Sure, if I'm having people over or have a good reason for fancy cooking, I might give up on easy and quick - maybe even cheap. But tasty and healthy are required (and really, I like cheap, too.)
I love food, I love eating, but I also love not seeing my money fly out the window. I'm okay with it if that makes me cheap!
This meal fit all of these things! I had never bought an eggplant before (I'm really expanding my boundaries, here, folks!!) and on a whim I picked one up at the grocery store. Then the only question that remained was what the heck to do with it?? This is what I tried and I loved it!
This recipe was split by Jake and I for dinner and there was plenty left over for leftovers for me over the weekend. The only think I might have done differently is to cut the eggplant up a bit smaller than I did - just my two words of wisdom!
And here is the recipe! If you try it I would love to hear what you think!
I hope you enjoy!
